quick folder navigation extenskion for Mozilla Thunderbiord no longer works


Dan Beaver
 

My Thunderbird updated today and after word this extension no longer works.  I looked at the add on manager and it says it is no longer compatible with Thunderbird.


I thought I'd mention this since some of us use this extension.  What a pain.

Thanks for the heads up! I didn't allow it to install.

According to the page for the Quick Folder Key Navigation Add-On for Thunderbird a new version was released in September that should work with Thunderbird 68.0 and later.

It is noted as Version 2.0 of the add-on.

Just one more example of what I say from time to time.  Why update programs just because updates are available?  There are programs that should be updated, such as browsers for security reasons and because, given enough time, increasingly more sites won’t work with an old browser that hasn’t been updated for a long time.  But e-mail is an old protocol and it is unlikely you will have security problems or vulnerabilities if you don’t update for a good while. 
 
Of course, a program may have features you want in an upgraded version but if you are just using Thunderbird for mail, I doubt that new features for e-mail have been added for a long time.

I wanted to confirm that this latest version of the addon does indeed work with Thunderbird 68.3.0. It is an absolute joy to have this capability.

And a second confirmation that the add-on is working for me with Thunderbird 68.3.1 (32-bit, running on a 64-bit Win10 machine).

Because:

1.  Virtually all updates to any program you can name involve at least some security patches, and e-mail clients have had plenty of those.

2.  The first thing you're going to be asked if you seek support, for anything, is, "Are you on the latest version?," and being told to do that first.

There is virtually no reason to not keep your programs and add-ons up-to-date.  It's best practice to do this.

Hello Dan,

You did not write, what version of Thunderbird you use.

I have version 68.3 and in this version quick folder key navigation does really works.

Correcting: the addon Quick folder key navigation works in version 68.1 and later.

In the version 68.0 it doesn't work.

Sorry, I am on 68.3.1 which is what it updated to yesterday.  It started working again after I updated the quick key folder navigation extension.
